Guest Janine Firpo brings advice on how to create a values-driven investment strategy. She is a seasoned values-aligned investor and social innovator, with a long history of working at the intersection of women and their money. Her book, Activate Your Money: Invest to Grow Your Wealth and Build a Better World, was a collaborative effort with almost 150 women. Topics discussed include how to identify your values as they pertain to your investments, how to begin making socially-driven changes to your portfolio and how to measure your impact? Does socially-conscious investing come at a financial cost?
